Ernest Hemingway “Learn to Write”


“It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.” – Ernest Hemingway


Learning to Write

We don’t have to start knowing how to write, we start out not knowing anything and then learn how to write. Although many still think that people who write well, or do anything well, are capable by some special talent. That they were born to do it.

This isn’t limited to just writing and authors.

The idea that talent is necessary for success is ridiculous. I’m not saying talent isn’t helpful, sure it is. But the best, most successful people all study, practice, and learn. To sum it up: they work hard.

The common term is: overnight success.

It’s easy to look at talented people and assume it came easily. We don’t know all the hard work that went into developing that success.

We see wildly successful people enjoying the fruits of their labor through information channels like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and it’s this brief interaction that gets us to believe that these people seemingly go without struggles or any failures. This isn’t the truth.


Whether you’re learning to write, learning about business, blogging, Facebook, relationships, anything – Remember we are always learning, and we must always strive to be better.
